    The final Gallup produced chart contains nothing much new with D:Ream ending an era which started back in January 1983 with Phil Collins’s “You Can’t Hurry Love” at the top. “Things Can Only Get Better” is now in its third week at the top as it tops the 200,000 mark by selling a very healthy 81,000 copies almost double the 47,000 that Toni Braxton’s “Breathe Again” sold in its charge 7-2, clearly it will have to go some to make that final step. D:Ream’s achievements are all the more impressive as their album is re-issued and debuts at No 5 nearly 40 places higher than it made last year.



    Bryan Adams/ Rod Stewart and Sting continue atop the US charts but slide here 2-3 (47,000) despite increasing sales again, they almost lost their top 3 placing as Enigma shoot 9-4 (47,000) in a very tight part of the chart where under 500 copies separated numbers 2 to 4, K7 complete the top 5 as they fall 3-5 (35,000).

    “The Power Of Love” was of course a 5 week chart topper and the best selling single of 1985 in the UK on its way to selling a million copies and becoming one of the top 10 best selling singles of the decade. For all of that it stiffed outside the top 50 in the US where the highest charting version of the song before this year was the No 26 version by Laura Branigan in 1987. That may help to explain the current version by Celine Dion and why it’s doing so well stateside (No 3 at the moment). It has now become top 10 here for a second time in 9 years as it saunters 20-7 (28,000), it simultaneously becomes her biggest UK hit as it goes 2 places better than her only other UK top 10 hit “Beauty & The Beast” in 1992. Dion’s album “The Colour Of My Love” is out next month.

    Going strong for ten years, it was Red Hot Chili Peppers decision to sign to Warner Brothers in 1990 that started to generate record sales for the group, their last album “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” provided them with their biggest single, the No 26 hit “Under The Bridge”…until now. Also from the same album “Give It Away” was the lead track from the album but bombed when released in 1991, since then its grown into a fan favourite and gets a second chance becoming their biggest hit debuting at No 9 (23,000) and causes the album to re-enter at the dizzy heights of No 66!



    Elsewhere Tori Amos falls 4-6 (31,000), Culture Beat relent 6-8 (24,000) and Haddaway holds at No 10 (22,000).

    It loses 24% in sales but D:Ream’s “Things Can Only Get Better” grabs a fourth week at the top as its sales swell to 331,000 proving that the album (which moves 5-7) is eating into sales. It will almost certainly lose its crown next week to Toni Braxton who holds at No 2 (54,000) and is eroding their lead at just the right rate. Enigma also climb 4-3 (45,000) but actually lost sales and seem to have faded at the critical point, Celine Dion is a much better option, she’s up 7-4 (40,000) and should place easily in the top 3 next week, it’s doing even better in the US where it hits the top!

    A No 15 single in 1992 for producers Clivilles & Cole they’ve teamed up again to produce a cover (not too dissimilar to the original) for Aretha Franklin whose version of “A Deeper Love” appears on the forthcoming film “Sister Act II”. It’s Franklin’s biggest hit in 7 years and with only her 1968 No 4 track “I Say A Little Prayer” going higher in her solo discography. A new best of will follow from Franklin later this year but her rebirth as a dance star seems to be assured on this evidence with this track asserting itself at No 5 (36,000)

    Coming to attention after singing with Michael Bolton at a benefit concert, Wendy Moten was signed up and produced her debut album which was helped promotion wise by supporting Bolton on his world tour last year. She feels the benefit here with her single “Come In Out Of The Rain” shooting 22-8 (23,000) to launch her career in some style.

    Arriving at No 9 (19,000) are Reel 2 Real which is a recording name for DJ Erick Morillo, and his hit “I Like To Move It” features vocals by The Mad Stuntman (real name Mark Quashie). The song hasn’t overly troubled the airplay charts but is a hit nevertheless and contains a sample of Sylvester’s “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)”.

    French Duo Deep Forest first promoted “Sweet Lullaby” about 10 months ago and has become an established track in certain ambient circles. Its mix of electronica and world music has now been remixed by (among others) Apollo 440 for chart purposes and is based around a traditional Soloman Island folk song, it’s already been top 20 in France, Australia, and Switzerland over the last 18 months. It lifts gently 12-10 (19,000)



    Bryan Adams/ Sting/ Rod Stewart drop 3-6 (25,000), and K7 slide 5-7 (25,000).
